How grand would we love if we thought we would not be able to love another day? What incredible strength could we find,within ourselve to show it, knowing today was the only day left? How deeply would our hearts break for our wives, or our husbands, if we knew they would suffer in the weight of being stretch and at the same time we being buried beneath insurmountable grief.
It is easy to not want something while you have it with you. It is easy to say "if they leave it might be hard for a minute but look at everything else which will be better". It is easy to fill their space with work, friends, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and children; or even nothing but imaginary disconnected things. But in the reality of a clear moment those lies will surely fail.
These are the thoughts which grieved our Lord and Savior, the thoughts which gave him hope to persevere and endure. These hopes were not his own, but His Fathers and those griefs are the same ones as the Holy Ghost.
"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. "You heard that I said to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. ~ John 14:27, 28
When His people are grieved, so is He. May we do all we can to love and encourage day after day, as long as it is still called "Today (Hebrews 3:13)
If you have not heard For King and Country's interview about the video above you should hit play and hear that and the song - inspirational!
I pray we love deeply, with the grace we have ourselves been given and let nothing keep His glory from returning to His presence. May it be the witness of His life in many ways....
